XFN Friendliness

I've updated my blogroll to be XFN friendly. Actually, I went one step further and updated the script that I use to pull my blogroll from blo.gs to grab the XFN values from the RSS feed, thanks to their recently added support for XFN. I could even make the script available, if anyone would be interested in having it.

Now, if I can just add the 'met' value to some of those links… ;)

You'll have to go to one of these developer events some time. If you can justify the cost. Well I guess it depends how far you have to fly, mostly.

I'm seriously considering SXSW for next year. Any ideas what other conferences might be good?

Not particularly, the only public event I have been to is the computer arts expo. I just happened to be in London when it was on. Of course that is basically just a product showcase. As far as I'm concerned there has been nothing worth attending in Australia. I have limited interest in Flash so I didn't even consider attending the recent flash/macromedia event. I'm not going to travel to Sydney for a small event that would be mediocre at best.

Then there are workshops, from what I have seen offered you would want to really be sure you weren't wasting your time and money. Here is an example of one I saw recently, I considered offering my services as a speaker because obviously they have no idea what they are doing, joking. (google:"Melbourne Web Accessibility Workshops April 2004"). Also see nils dot org dot au. Of course it is just my opinion, judging from the impression I got from their sites, I may be wrong. The visionaustralia homesite could do with some work too.

I think with most web related workshops you could harvest at least twice as much information from the web in at most half the time. Even get a good book, the author of a good book probably knows more than a presenter at an average workshop. However I have seen some good looking workshops too! Of course it depends how you learn, some people have trouble with books. Getting fairly off topic so I better stop.
